Premier Sires


Premier Sires is an Artificial Breeding programme developed by LIC as an economic and convenient way for farmers to breed:

  • high producing herds
  • easily managed animals
  • efficient cows which generate more profit per hectare

Semen is provided from a team of genetically superior Holstein-Friesian, Jersey and KiwiCross bulls proven through LIC ’s unique Sire Proving Scheme. 

Benefits of using Premier Sires

  • The best bulls
    Premier Sires has an advantage over other products due in part to the liquid semen technology developed by LIC.Our Long-Last Liquid semen gives us the ability to achieve widespread use of the top bulls. One ejaculate of semen processed into liquid delivers ten times the number of straws compared to freezing the semen.

  • The best current genetics
    As the bulls in Premier Sires are being collected during the mating period,it puts us in the unique position of being able to include or exclude bulls from the teams based on all the current information available. The benefit to you is that you will always receive the most up-to-date genetics to enhance the profits of your farming operation.
